this is a good question...when ever I go into a camera shop to buy a camera, they always try to push all these add-ons and a polarized lense is always one of them.

so if anyone out there knows, share

i dont know much about photography but my brother just bought one of these(for his slr), and it is a filter with a dark gradient (so from clear>dark), he said you can use it for pictures where half of the pic is bright, eg landscape with bright sky, it will bring out the shape of the clouds, dim the sky a bit. dont know if thats tottaly right so feel free to correct me.

FYI

For most Point & shoot with no filter thread you'll need some sort of adapter:

and for the effect: http://www.cokin.com/ico8-p4.html this is a linear example, but you should get a circular polarizer for any AF camera.

It's called a graduated filter and not a polarizer!
http://www.cokin.com/ico8-p20.html this is an example of a graduated Mauve but you can get it in neutral (ie ND) as well...

While I was surfing the web a while back I came across this site. http://www.macdevcenter.com/pub/a/ma...hoto_tips.html Tip 2 has an example of pics taken with and without a polarizer filter.

Since A70 is a non an SLR or a thru the lens viewfinder, you will not be able to use a polarizer because you have to look through the filter to adjust the amount of Polarization.
